    This demonstration was so helpful for Xmas gifts with fall colors on the opposite side.

    Love the video and the project. I was looking for something easy and quick to do for our church shut-ins as a thinking of you gift. Someone had donated some Christmas themed material so I think I will get some fall material and do the two sided seasonal theme mud rugs. Great idea and I think these elderly folks will enjoy them. Thanks for sharing. <3

    Closed captions would be WONDERFUL. This is the reason I cancelled my other subscription, several years ago. You, obviously STILL haven’t done anything about it.

    The original flowered placemat/mug rug – what are the dimensions for it, please? I would like to know the dimensions of the entire piece, and the dimensions of each piece within it.
    Thank you very much!

      Hi Terri. These mug rugs are made from Charm squares, which are pre-cut 5″ squares of fabric.

    I loved your video! I made one today, but I used wool felt for my backing. It came out pretty cool!
